100% Linen

A versatile, easy-to-wear dress made from cool, breathable linen, garment-dyed for incredible softness and a sun-faded hue. This sleeveless, below-the-knee length style is an ideal transitional piece – it layers perfectly over an organic cotton t-shirt when it’s cooler. It’s finished with a scoop neck with yoke detail, invisible side zip and in-seam pockets.

Almost perfect

I’ve been looking for a classic well-tailored linen summer dress for some time and this one almost fits the bill. I think it might have been my perfect ‘little black dress’ for summer had it been available in a size 6 Regular instead of only Petite. I’m a size 6 who’s not petite in stature so the fit through the torso is not as flattering as it could have been. While it’s not possible to please everyone, I do wish that Seasalt would bring back the Regular length size 6 for those of us who are taller than 5’3”. Previously size 6s were available in both Regular and Short.

Good looking.

This dress has a lovely shape and is the perfect length for me. I bought a regular, I am 5ft 9ins and it comes to just below my knees.
However, contrary to others’ comments, I don’t think the linen is a good quality and it hasn’t been made well. Expensive for what it is.

Nice dress

Really like the simplicity of this dress and will certainly keep it but just a little disappointed that the colour is a much more washed out black than it appears in the photo. It has two lines across it where it was folded though I’m hoping they will disappear when pressed . Hope it doesn’t lose more colour after it has been washed. Still pleased with my purchases though I haven’t worn it yet and am very excited about the new petite range which this is part of .

Perfect summer dress

This is perfect in every way: petite length covers my knees (I am 5'3"); it is cut so that it doesn't show bra straps; the colour is a flattering slate grey/navy cross; the linen is lovely quality, a good weight, so hangs well; and it's got pockets! Brilliant. Other colours would be great, too.

beautiful dress

The linen in this dress is beautiful and fit well. The service behind this purchase was 5 anchor as well, very helpful in regards to discerning whether to size up or not. Thank you seasalt

Cottage Garden dress

I just love the dress, the fit is spot on for me. I ordered 14 petite. I would love to have it in a true navy blue, or even in a calico ecru shade. Often when seams overlap the zip can be difficult to open and close. After many years in the sewing trade, a touch of Vaseline can do the trick on both tracks of the zip. Likewise lead pencil for metal zips.

I ordered this dress a few days ago having fancied a pinafore-type dress for a while and already loving Seasalt linen and am so pleased with it! The 16 petite fits perfectly (I'm 5' 4" and normally a 16) with a lightweight layer underneath. It'll be great in the summer with just a cardi over. The linen is soft and, as with all Seasalt linen, will only get better and softer with time. Could we have this in a few more colours, please!?
